The pathway’s core curriculum will focus on key topics in Medical Education, such as:
Each quarter, a dinner meeting will give residents an opportunity to discuss their work / projects in medical education, brainstorm ideas for individual and group projects, get feedback on their educational scholarly work, identify mentors, and interact with leaders in medical education from across Harvard, Boston, and the country. In addition, these will include discussions of core topics and critical appraisal of educational articles. Examples of past meeting topic include:
- Subha Ramani – SME Pathway Director – Developing a medical education project
- Liz Armstrong – Director of the Harvard Macy Institute – Leading institutional change
- Charlie Hatem – Former Chair, Department of Education, Mount Auburn Hospital – History of medical education
Application of educational principles learned during didactic sessions to scholarly projects and educational innovations will be a highlight of the pathway. Therefore, residents, with guidance from faculty mentors, Chiefs and the Pathway Directors, will develop and implement 1-2 medical education projects over the course of the time in the pathway.
In 2017, the group selected 2 team projects for design, implementation and evaluation. These are:
- Developing Point of Care Ultrasound Curriculum for Residents
- Creating a New Curriculum to Facilitate the Intern to Junior Resident Transition
Structured Observation of Teaching
Track members will have the opportunity to participate in simulated teaching in different settings with feedback from track members and mentors.
